Roving Rube

Sept. 9, 2003

Takashi Murakami's "Reversed Double Helix", Rockefeller Center

What's New












The Rube says three things about Art: "it was [hesitation] o.k."; "it was pretty neat"; "it was really neat". To this piece he says #3.

The picture's scale may be misleading: the central figure, "Mr. Pointy", is thirty feet tall (though that's counting the point on his head which you can't see here), and the black balloons flanking his head are 60' off the ground (though that's counting the fact they are over the skating rink).

This exhibition opens today at Rockefeller Center and continues through October 12th.
